T.A-Edison; 
Dear sir; 
I have just had a proposition to act 
as an expert and aviary in the matter of storage batteries for 
iene application of vga to lighting. I have refused és. 


ade Hy bef 


nave aay eSRu to say or do about, ‘St till I hear from you in re~ 
ste 


_ gard to the Quen ULOns Do you consider that “theke is any eldim 


1, Fast pangane obligation on me as respects that question? As I re- 


Ly : 


member, the question of such batteries had not come up in relation 4 


wie

to the Edison system of lighting and if so, it would seem that 
there would not be any impropriety in my, rendering any service | 
I may be avle to, especially if you do not , and do not intend to 
make age of Such batteries in your system... 

Please let me hear how you understand the matter. 


Yours truly.

Plaintiff, 
AND 
THE MAXIM ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER

Defendants, 






To the Honorable the ‘Judges of said Court : 
Your orator complains and says: 


I, That your orator is the owner of properties situated . 
on the west side of Delaware Avenue between Market 
and Arch Streets, The said-properties, with the buildings 
erected thereon, have a frontage on the west side of Delaware 
Avenue of two hundred and nine feet, and ure. numbered 


10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, and 26 North Delaware 
Avenue, — ° :

TI. That the defendants were created a body politic and. 


corporate under an Act of the General Assembly approved 
April 29, 1874, entitled “An Act to provide for'the incor- 
poration and regulation of.certain corporations,” and in 
recordance with the provisions of said Act received Letters 
Patent, dated the eighth day of September, A. D, 1881. 


- TY, That under and by virtue of said Letters Patent 
the said defendants are authorized and empowered to engage 
in and carry on the business of buying, manufacturing and 
selling machinery for the production and distribution of 
electricity and of producing electricity ‘and selling and fur- 
nishing the same for light, heat and power, or for any other 
purpose. 


TV. That by an ordinance of Select and Common Coun- 
cils of the city of Philadelphia, entitled, “ An Ordinance to 
“authorize the Maxim Electric Light and Power Company 
“to erect poles, run its wires, and to lay its conductors 
“under ground, in, through and over and under certain 
“streets of the city of Philadelphia,” approved June 21, 
1882, the said city has authorized the said defendants to run 
its wires for the purpose of furnishing the city,und the pub- 
lic with light by electrical currents, and to that end to erect 
such posts and poles as may be necessary, or to,lay tubes, 
cables or wires underground in, through and over the fol- 
lowing ‘streets of the said. city of Philadelphia, to wit: 
Between Bainbridge Street and Vine Street from the River 
Delaware to the River Schuylkill, between Vine Street and 
Green Street from the Delaware River to Twenticth Street, 
und on the streets running north and south from Washing- 
ton Avenue to Columbia Avenue. A copy of said ordi- 
nanceis hereto attached as part hereof, marked “ Exhibit A.” 


V. And your orator charges that the said defendants 
have erected wooden poles or posts along the west side of said 
Delaware Avenue, in front of your orator’s said properties, 


and have susponded, or are about to suspend, therefrom, 


one or more electric wires, 


sud 





Sa 
ni erence,

VI. And your orator further charges thut the suspen- 
sion of said wires in tront of your orator’s buildings is a 
nuisunce, and that said wires are dangerous and will seri- 
ously impair the value of said properties, and your orator’s 
use thereof. ; 


That the presence of snid wires strung in front of your 
orator’s building will, in case of fire upon said premises, 
greatly interfere with the extinguishment thereof, 


That the defendant’s only authority for suspending said 
wires in front of your orator’s buildings, is the ordinance of 
Councils above mentioned, aud’ your orator denies that said 
city of Philadelphia can authorize the said defendants to 
impair or damage the use and enjoyment of your orator’s 
said premises without making compensation therefor. - 


And your orator avors, that sdid wires can be laid in 
underground conduits so as not to interfere with your 
orator’s proper use of said premises, and nt the same time 
permit the said defendants to fully enjoy the privileges 
granted to them by the ordinance of Gouncils heretofore 
referred to. 





~ 


Wherefore your orator prays that the defendants may, 


pending this bill, be speciully and thereafter perpetually 
enjoined from suspending electric wires from or upon the 
posts or poles erected by them upon the west side of said 
Delaware Avenuo in front of your orator’s said premises, 
and from maintaining and operating any electric wires sus- 
pended in front of your orator’s said premises.

Dear S1r :—I beg to..ack owledge the receipt of your 
letter of the 17th in: ‘refergnee : to electric.-lighting af 
London. I referred your Guaons to the chief engineer of 
the Edison Electric Light Corkpany, Viaduct, ‘London, who 
informed me in reply that: allg e wires for ‘street, lights are 
underground (a fact which is’true: of all telephone and tele- 
graph wires in London); that he system works ‘Batiafactorily 
in everything except the’ ri er of exponse-dn tearing up 
the streets; and that the ual al .ayatem is to lay the wire 
eighteen inches below the: pay ment, and two féét'from the-., 
curbstone. It may be well -téudd that Parliament lnst'yen?” 
passed the general Electric’ [uight Act,” giving privileges 
to the companies at the request of municipal corporations 
to lay wires in this way, altKough the temporary inconve- 
nience to strect traftic is sometimes very great. 

Had I more time it would give me great pleasure to 
give you a fuller deseriptiod of the matter, which your . 
request for answer by return rhail prohibits. 

I romain, sir, yourjobedient servant,

WHAT EDISON SAYS. 

N.Y. Herald,, April 20, 1888. 

“Speaking of the number of new electric light com- 
panies which are springing tinto existence,” said. ‘Thomas 
Edison to a HeRawp reporter yesterday, “T may sufely say 
that every company that strings its wires on poles is adding 
additional dangors to the public safety. A law compelling 
all electric light companiés to’ place their wires benenth the 
ground would certainly be » prudent enactment. These 
wires have been the cause already on soveral occasions of 
serious peril. 

“I know that searcely a day passes without some warn- 
ing being given of the danger of the are light wires running 
through the air. Wherever these wires are suspended from 
telegraph or telephone poles they are liable to cause a fire. 
For should the curront be diverted—and this might occur 
from the slightest contact—the heat would be sufficient to, 

_ consume telegraph and telephone instruments, and set fire 
to any ordinary material that might lic near at hand. Some 
weeks ago a fireman, in this city, attempted to remove the 
release key of a fire alarm box. As he touched the key he 
received a severe shock. There is every reason to belicvo 
that in this enge the fire telograph wire has become crossed 
with an electric light wire, and the current had thus been 
diverted. Hud the ground upon which the fireman stood 
been damp, or had the soles of his boots been wet, the 
chances are that the current going through his body would 
have killed him on the spot. - 


EDISON SOUNDS A WARNING OF DANGER. 


“ Not long ago the accidental contact of an electric light 
wire with a fire service telegraph wire resulted in the destruc- 
tion of the electro-maguets in a score of fire boxes in the 


[ENCLOSURE] 






sees portion of the city, and. p.complete interruption of the 
fire alarm signals in that section onsued and lasted until the 
electro-magnets had been replaced. Again, ata fire in Four- 
teenth Street, some broken telegraph wires in front of o 
building fell across an electric light wire. A fireman caught 
hold of these telegraph wires in the effort to disengage the 
hose. He received a terrific shock, The heated telegraph 
wires had burned through tho insulating cover of the electric 
wire and contact had been established. Some months ago, 
as you must remember, as much publicity was given to the 
occurrence, a workman in the employ of one of the companies - 
climbed a pole for the purpose'of mending a wire. A short 
time afterward his dead body was found clinging to the pole. 
He had touched the wire and had received a shock which 
had killed him. And what wonder? Fourteen hundred 
volts are dangerous, nnd the are light companies rarely run 
any lower than this and run all the way up to two thousand 
volts. Ido not like to say very much on this subject for 
fear of alarming the firemen. ~And it is certainly caleulated 
to alarm «man when he learns that the slightest contact of 
his- peran with a wire may be ns deadly as a shot from a 
cannon.” 

“© What means can be devised to obviate this danger ” 

‘Well, the best means I know of and have said isto 
put all the wires under ground.: Butthe are light companies 
say they cunnot afford to do this. ‘To put tho wires under 
ground costs in all about fifty centsa foot. To ran the wires 
through the air docs not cost’ more than five hundred dollars 
per mile, These companies are not doing enough business 
to enable them to atand this difference in expense.”

Dear Sir :—-Your favor of yesterdny is at hand. In 
reply thereto, I beg leave to state, thnt having spent a large 


portion of the past five years in London , Paria, Brussels and * 


other Enropean cities, I am quite familiar with every system 
of electric lighting abroad. I was present by invitation at 
the innuguration of the Siemen’s syatem, the British electric 
light system, and the Anglo- American ayatem in London. 
Theelectric light is . used extensively in London for 
street lighting, especially in the region of - Westminster; the 
’ Thames embankment, Westminster, Waterloo: and Black- 
frine’s bridges, Queen Victoria Street, Holborn Viaduct, 
Cheapside, King William Street, and generally in’ the 
old city proper, 
For the distribution of. clectricity to these strect lamps, 
enbles are used and buried inthe: streets just beneath the 
pavement. : 


same method is adapted in Paris and Brussela.: ; 

‘Tt has often been stated :that electric: light wires are 
lnid inthe sewers. in Paria; but this is'a mistake, ‘The 
sewers aro of solid masonry, and:the places of egress: avernge 
‘four ‘bundred metres aparts?, ‘They . are upon an average 





There would be no difficulty whatever in 


They are opened-and closed between the hours ” 
of twelve at night and half-past four in the porate The’ 


bie aes Bho asa tata

twonty-five 'feet-below the surface and‘:in''the centre’ of ‘the 
‘street.’ If can be aeen nt once that thay are not adapted for 
the use of: electrical conductors: such as are nen: in avenue 


ae l’Opera. - 


« The conductors used ‘in’ ¥-Buropo are inisdlatadl with 
fatiepeiahd: and are available in this‘country, for thore ia 


dthing to hinder their use except a slightly increased ‘first 


vost, I believe them to be much chonper in the end. There 


jis another advantage in‘placing conductors under ground; 


it almost entirely removes the source of danger by which 
numbers have lost their lives. . 
I am very respectfully yours, 
“*" DAVID BROOKS.

Dear Sir ¥oure of 81st-Maurch, in reference to the nso 
of underground wires for electric lights, is at hand... ..-.. 
If the conduetors ‘which ure to. carry. currents for 
electrical lighting are placed in conduits separate and apart 
from those used for telegraphic and telephonic purposes, 
the underground system is to.be preferred to that overhead 


‘on poles, 


Ido not’ know of any reason why all electrical con- 


ductors should not be placed underground, and suppose 
- «thatthe additional expenso incurred in laying conduits is the 
“enuse which prevents the universal adoption of That method:

Lxtract from Invitation, April 13th, 1883. 

‘An ideal system-is one under which every house may be supplied, on demand, 
with every form of electric “connection, without delay, undue cost, or disturbance of 
the streets, If a Burglar Alarm, Messenger Call, Telephone, Incandescent Electric 
Light, Arc Light, Time Wire, Stock eeever, Lifting and Pumping Power, or Tele- 
graph connection is desired, the attachment ought to be immediate and without 
removal of the pavement. zat 

“There is no existing system under which this can be effected, but there are 
about three hundred and filty patented devices, of more or less value and utility, which 
deal with insulation, induction, mechanical arrangements for expansion and contrac- 
tion, supporting conductors in the conduits, discharging and conducting surplus elec- 
tricity, permitting additions and service connections to be made, and giving easy 
access to particular parts for repair, Some of these may be essential, and are sure to 
be useful in the development of an effective working system.” 





; Resolutions Adopted April 20th, - 
“ Resolved, That, in the opinion of this meeting, the time lias arrived When it is 
expedient to make.an exhaustive examination of all devices and inventions. pertaining 
to the subject of underground electrical: communication, with a‘ view ‘to determine 
whether any inclusive system can be found which will enable the electrical corporations 
to establish such communications, ees 
\' Resolved, That it is the sense of this meeting that the public desire to’ relieve 
the thoroughfares from poles and wires is quite in accord with the wishes of the cor- 
orations, and that the true interest of the shareholder is to be found ina permanent, 
inclusive, and protected system, oe oey tay a 
‘* Resolved, That the problem presented to the corporations and the electrical 
engincers is complex and difficult, and in-the opinion of this meeting has not yet been 
fully solved ; that any system to be adopted must combine the highest efficiency with 


7 reasonable economy, and serve inclusive interests; that while it is perhaps possible for 





trunk-line telegraphs to avail themselves of existing devices, it is not possible, in the 
present state of the art, for services connecting every house in the city so to do, with- 
out an expenditure so vast as to be prohibitory in most instances, and that “therefore 
hasty compulsory Icgislation is to be deprecated as‘being destructive to useful and in- 
dispensable public conveniences,” —_- Be Disa AE std a rig ot

Lustructions to the Committee onElectrical and Mechanical Devices. 


: peti by 
It shall ke the duty of the Committes on Electrical.and Mechanical Devices to 
examine inventions in use, or that may be presented to them; to give notice to ine 
ventors as to the nature and extent of. its. requirements, and state the problem to be 
solved, with the purpose of concentrating inventive effort to n practical direction ; and 
generally, to consider and report, for the instruction of the General Committee, the 
state of the art, that the difficulties are or are not surmounted, or, in the judgment of 
the Committee, surmountable ; and, in default of an ideal and perfected system, to make 
such recommendations to the General Committee as may in its estimation seem worthy 
of adoption as providing a partial or temporary remedy for the difficulties encountered, 
ending the invention and perfecting of f satisfactory system. To report in the first 
instance to the Committee on Business Ofganization; wt

PROSPECTUS OF 


Ghe Glectric, Ianufacturing and Miscellaneous Stock Exchange, 


—_— eo 


The amount of Cash Capital invested in Electric, Manufacturing and “ Miscellaneous” Companies exceeds 
that invested in Railroads, and the securities of these incorporations have become so important in the jinan- 
cial world that they require a representative market of their own, : ‘ 

Stocksand Bonds of Insurance, Bank, Gas, Horse Car, Sewing Machines, Land and sundry Commer- 
cial Companies (but nonrinally represented), have an actwa? value ranging in hundreds of millions of dollars. 

The Zvectric interest, now one of the most important in the world, having its investments in Telegraph, 
Telephone, Electric Light, Signal, Electric Railway, Electric Manufacturing and other Industrial applications 
of Electricity, are already enormous. ; 

‘The great Afanufacturing interest of this country, represented by Cotton, Wool, Grist, Leather, Iron, 
and hundreds of thousands of Producing stock companies, alone, exceeds that of the Railroads. 


In the absence of a representative Exchange, dealings in these securities are greatly restricted and re- 


tarded by private brokers, to the inconvenience of patrons, and, from the want of a competitive market, 


prices have been only nominal, ; . Koay : 

Hence the’ necessity of an Exchange which shalt afford a market for all classe of valuable securities not 
listed upon the New York Stock Exchange, ** 97" Fs es : 

: Therefore this Exchange has been duly incorporated and established upon a substantial basis, Good 
stocks may be listed, called daily, a market value fixed and transactions recorded, with the same facilities and 
advantages as those upon the New York Stock Exchange, and governed by the same rules, 

Members of the New York Stock Exchange, have access to the floor of this Board and dealings upon 
payment of a registry fee. ; 

A new and important feature is to be introduced in this Exchange, viz: A Daily Auction Sale of all 
classes of-securities. This will be of great value to companies anda convenience to. bankers, brokers and 
the public, who are desirous of disposing of securities at public sale. The sale ig to take place in the middle 
of the day, during which time the Board is adjourned and the room thrown open to -the public and an 
“Open Public Exchange created. Securities will then be disposed of as at the presentauction rooms. Great 


advantage is afforded by advertising in official report of. the Exchange without charge, and more general © 


publicity and security. . 

A Gratuily or Insurance Fund is to be established for the benefit of members, similar to that of other 
Exchanges. 

Any legitimate enterprise of value, whose securities are not listed on the New York Stock Exchange, if 
approved by the Security Committee, on the payment of registry fee of $100, may have the same listed and 
publicly “called ” and transactions recorded and published in the official report of the Exchange and the 
daily papers. . : ‘ 

Incorporated Companies desiring to list, will please fill out attached application and return same to 
Secretary, Applications should be accompanied by a check for the amount of registration fee, payable to 
order of the Treasurer, Arthur B, Graves, Esq. : : 

It is desired to secure, as far as possible, as members, those persons who will contribute to the success of 
the Exchange. The co-operation of parties at present dealing in Electric, Manufacturing and :Miscelldne- 
ous securities is especially invited. : : ; : : - 

' ” This Exchange is limited to five -Aundred members, and commences with a membership of over two 
hundred. ; : ; . 

It has been resolved to close the subscription books for the first limited allotment of ‘seats, at $2 50, prior 
to the official opening of the Exchange, December 3d, : Bs 

Application blanks may be had of, and subscriptions-made through and payable to the order of

STORAGE BATTARIRS. 


Statements are nade to the subsidiary Rrush companies i 
that they have a large investwont laying idle 10 hours daily and : 
that with ths storage batteries and incandescent lamps they would 
be enabled to utilize their. plant all day long and thus gam a, 
great deal of money. This appears to be a self evident proposi= 


tion, but the fallacy livs in the fact that the batterios required 


to store the product of the station would eall’ for an inercasad 


ar 


investment twice as groab as already invested in ths station= 

ot : we 
which increased investment has an enormous depreciation 27 d.. , 
The negative plates of all sevondary batteries are svon saben away 


and have to be renewed Croquently. The batteries rapidly dimin- 


ish ‘their capacity for’ storage and have to be made up fresh. 


: : Only about two thirds of the current in a battery ean - ; } 


be taken out as the current otherwise would ba tou weak to brin 
> 


up the lamps. Hence there must be one’ third greater investment i 


in batteries on this account. In addition there must be extra 





batteries which have to be thrown in from time to time to keep 

up the candle power of the lamps. ‘The battaries are liable to 
| all kinds vf disorders there is creeping across the space between 
the eleétrodes of metallic lead produced by elastrolytie de- 


positions; there is local action in the battery which eauses tho 


stored up energy to be rupidly dissipated; the sulphuric acid 


gradually combines with the oxide of lead which covers the activo 
“y . { 


Ld woe 
Material of the battery increasing its resistance -— the exhaustion

of the sulphuric acid stops the action of the battery. 
The experiments on the best form of secondary hy Tresca 
of the Conservotiors des Arts «of Metres shows that 190 lbs. of ma 
terial is required to commredaily store one horses powar for ons 


hour- The vost of the completed battery with its me chanism-tho 


‘labur~-the power required for furming--will bring its cost up so 


that it vannot be suld with any degree of profit for less than 35 


vents per lb, taking say $6.50 per Light. 


With this duta take a Cotton mill requiring 250 Lights, 
where the longest time of lighting in any ona day is twu hours, 
und with 10 lanps of 1G eandles per horse powder of current. — 

Battery fur 250 lights at $6.50 per light, per hour. for. 
two hours amounts to $3250. About 50 per cent was the ratum 
obtained by Tres¢a,’ from the dynamo but it would not be more han 
45 per cent frou the indicated horse power of the engine, but say. 
50 por ednte 250 lights require 25 horse power per hour to work 


the lamps, 50 per cent loss allowed for between the engine. and’ 


the lamps. © 50 indivated horse power per hour is required. Yen ce 


for two hours 100 horse power is requisite. Tf now a ‘small dvn~ 
amo is used to charge for 8 hours, it will require 12 horse sous 
Price of dynamo $1200, waking total investuont 34450. ° 100 horse 
power for vne hour (or 12 for 8 huura) consumes 400 lbs. coul.

PROSPECTUS 


OF THE 


UNDERGROUND WIRE CoMPANY. 


It is proposéd to organize a company with a capital of 7,000 shares of the par value of 
$100 each, to bércalled The Underground Wire Manufacturing Company. 


The objects of the proposed company are to manufacture, sell and use lead-covered 
wires, for telegraphic, telephonic, lighting, and any other purposes for which electric wires 
are used. | 


Contracts have been made for the purchase’ of the Berthoud-Borel Patents for the 
United States, they having proved the most practicable used in Europe, upon very 
favorable terms, and it is proposed to begin the manufacture at as early a date as possible. 


The necessity for placing all electric wires underground, at least in cities, is so evident 
that the newspaper press in all parts of the country has incessantly demanded legislation to 
that effect, and the Legislatures of several of the States and municipal authorities in many 
cities have already passed such acts, It is but a short time until all the States will do the 
same, The different telegraph and electric light companies have fully admitted the 
desirability of an underground system that could successfully be worked at a reasonable 
cost. Many costly experiments have been made in Europe, and, recently, in-this country. 
The problems to be solved are, first, that a method should beinvented by which great lengths 
of cable might be manufactured at,once; and, secondly, that an insulating material should 
be found and applied in such a manner as to be less expensive than gutta percha or India 
rubber. These difficulties are successfully surmounted in the process of Messrs. Berthoud & 
Borel, by means of which great lengths may be manufactured very rapidly and at a great saving 
of expense as compared with any process previously in use. A copper wire is wound in 
cotton and bathed in rosin and parafin, the whole hermetically enclosed in perfect contact, 
and under pressure within a lead envelope. Cotton bathed in parafin and protected from 
moisture is an excellent insulator. Experiments made on an extensive scale have proved 
that it may replace gutta percha and India‘ rubber. And lead is the best possible protec- 














tion from moisture. The practicability of these cables is thoroughly attested by their very 
general use in France and on the continent of Europe. At the recent French’ Exhibition 
the Company Jablockhoff made use of them to send the current to the electric candles and 
to the different motors in motion. Fifteen thousand metres conveyed power and light to 
different parts of the palace ; "5,000 metres were laid by the same company for Jablockhoff 
lights at the opera, Cables containing many wires were placed in the sewers to connect the 
Ministry of Posts and Telegraphs with the Exhibition. Some kilometres were laid in the 
sewers for telephonic purposes. New and extensive contracts have also been entered into 
with the Parisian Telephone Company. 


These cables are, however, comparatively little known in this Seinen owing to the 
great expense of shipment and a tariff of 47% per cent. They have been thoroughly 
tested, however, by some of the best known electricians in the United States, the results 
of which are here appended. % - 


The French Company (The Société Anonyme des Cables ‘Electriques), has extensive 
factories at Cortaillod, near Neufchatel, Switzerland, and at Grenelle, near Paris ; and have 
paid large dividends since organization. The schedule of cost provided by the company is 
very minute, and enables a very accurate estimate of the cost of manufacture in this country. 
The materials used are nearly all cheaper here than in France, and the item of labor is so 
insignificant in cost by this process that it can safely be said that telegraph, telephone and 
light companies can be supplied with cables in large quantities at a price considerably below 
that at which the same class of wires can be placed overhead, and still leave a large profit on 
the manufacturing. 


Each of the Berthoud-Borel machines constructs over three miles of completed cable in 
a day of ten hours, and Peau ‘the attendance of but one man, 
ey 
These cables being: the best as well as the cheapest manufactured will necessarily be 
the ones most in use. At present an Underground Telegraph Company, intending to lay 
underground wires through the country as well as in the cities, is successfully eNPermen eng 
with them. 


As soon as subscriptions to the stock of the Underground Wire Company shall have 
been received to the amount of $300,000 a meeting of the pubpenDets will be held to 


perfect an organization.

GenTLemen; [ am pleased to report to you the results-of the tests made at our laboratory, corner 
‘Twenty-fifth Street and Sixth Avenue, on Saturday, Dec, 10, 1881, with your wires for electric light purposes, 
submitted to me for trial. 

There were in circuit from our Five-Light Dynamo Machine, one piece of No. 22 copper wire, covered rae 
cotton and six inches in length ; next to this was a three feet piece of the Berthoud-Borel lead-covered wire No, 
22; then one foot of wire covered with buttons, and, lastly, another piece of No. 22 cotton-covered wire. 

“The result of the first trial Was the warming of the cotton-covered wires to a email extent, but with no effect 
on the light or wires. : . , 

A second trial was made with the same wires as above mentioned on a sixteen- light machine, ‘The result of 
this test was that the coffon covers on the first and last wires commenced to smoke, then to burn with a bright 
flame, and were finally consunied,. The first, third and fourth wires were heated to that extent that they melted, 
and the circuit was broken. ; 

On testing the lead- covered wire with the telephone, after ate first, experinient, it was found to be perfect; 
and after the second test had‘ been mide; the lead-covered wire was; Again tested with the telephone, and their 
insulation found perfect.’ An incision was then made in the centre oft th iis wire, and the insulating material found 


intact and uninjured. . Yours truly, ;

The foregoing trials were made in the presence of our Superintendent and Assistant Electrician, who have 


read the foregoing report, and state to me that the same is correct.

WESTERN UNion ‘TELEGRAPH Company. . , 

New York, December 2oth, 1880. 

Dear Sir: I have testitt for electrical qualities a sample of the new underground telegraph cable, patented 
by Messrs. Berthoud & Borel, The piece upon which I experimented is intended for use in connection with the _ 
electric light at’ Menlo Park, and is composed of a single conductor of seven No, 14 copper wires, covered with ° 
three orfour layers of cotton, saturated with parafin and resin, and protected by a covering of lead.. As you are 
familiar with the process of manufacture I will omit description, 

The sample referred to is roo metres (about 328 feet) in length, and at a temperature.of 15.5° C. (60° P), 
after being immersed in water several hours, tested as follows: 


@ 60° F, 


"Insulation resistance (after 1 minute), 29300.-+-Megohms. 

Inductive capacity, .03065°Microfarads, 

Loss of charge, after 1 minute, 3.7%; after ro minutes, 22.9%, 

Insulation, 1820,-+-Megohms per mile; 2730.-+-Megohms per kilometre. 
+, Capacity, 0.4935 Microfarads per mile; 0.3065 Microfarads per kilometre. 


Considering the nature of the material, the insulation of this cable is remarkably high; aided, no doubt, by 
belng kept from contact with moisture by the lead pipe. Its inductive Capacity, which was probably increased to 
some extent by the cable being coiled on a small reel, is higher than that of either gutta percha or rubber, but this 
is a factor of no great importancc in cables under one hundred miles in length. : 

Very respéctfully, 
GEO. B. PRESCOTT, JR., 


Asst. Electrician.

Dear Sir; 


I have received your esteened faver of 
July 24th. : 
I regret that there has been 80 uuch delay in fiilé: 
tng your orders for copper rods. ~ Lhe onty explanation I have 
to offersis this, - After the orders were placed and well 
under wuy,we received instructicns to yroove the rods tn a cer- 
tuin warmer. Our instructions were somewhat vague, and sore 
tine passed before we could guite determine what was reguired,. 
We finally submitted samples to Ur. Kruest which were ap- 
Proved of,und we then went ahead with the work, Lhis will 
aecount for a portion of the delay. Furthermore, Hr. insuli 
instructed us ta set uside ail this work in order to get out 
the lurge order for Louisuviitie,which we. did,according to.his 
fnstruct ions. Z:toid him distinctly that otker goods must 
watt if this was done,and he agreed to it. I should be hap- 
py to see Hr. Instill kere, 
However,the rods are ail betng finished at present,and J: 
saw large guantities Of them tn the Works at Ansonta a Sew 
days ayo,so I am confident you wild get mcst of tkem soon. 
Lhe telegraph is not working weli but I have sent a mes- 
suge to Ansonia to ascertutn wken you can expect these goods, 
and will give\personal attention to the uatter hereafter. Hope 
you will have no furtker .cause of conplaint. re 
I revwain, : | .

Dear Sirs 


: Your es? ‘ened . faver a Aug. 2th is at hand. 

z am ‘expecting senples cf the wire concerning which 
you and lr. Tohnson spoke .t.o me. - Wi 22 prebabiy have saenple 
to-morrow and will forward. it to you proupt fy on receipt.' JI 
think you will be Bat eried with the wire which I have Prepared 
LUA EAUPLR, oor. s- 

Our price for Paragon. wire- that ‘fs- ‘double cotton 
eovered,painted,and wound with tape before" Covering, which nakes | 
it waterproof and fi. reprocf- {s as Poticws.- To No.l? Brown &. 
Sharpe’s gauge,inclusive,8fcts per 1b net;- HoJI8 to 18 B.& &. 
4Iects per ib net. We shai be aieares to. receive. your or- 
ders. 

Revarding the price of copper rods, you, are. in erron 
in supposing we said the price would be only - one cent more than 
for wire. The price of rods ts 2cts per 1b more than wire, 
which only represents the extra cost of wunufacture; therefore, 
when we bill wire at 24ets we bil? rods at 26, ‘Lhe rods for 
which we. charged you 2?ets were ‘grooved and cost us Ic per ib 
extra,which we... charged. Yous :.- Our present price for rods — 
therefore is eocts | ‘for plain,and 2Pcts for greeved,~ subject to | 
the special arrangement which I nude with ir.Edison.

Dear Sir: 


c Your favor of Sept. IIth ts at hund witk 
inforuati on reyarding cable wire,for which I an obliged. I 
wil? prepare the cubie as soon as practicadie. Regarding 
the price-vas' I have before Stated,I will wake it as reasonable 
as possible. it is a@ new article, and we do not know the ccst. 

If we find that. we can ‘afferd to sell it fer less than 45cts 
an?) pound: we shaii certainiy wake the price lcwer,us it would not 
be poticy for us to churye an extravagant rate fer this cable, . 
out the wire has to be handled so wuny times that it wakes very 
expensive work, 
We have received un order fron Prof. Colonwbho of Milan 
Jor the foliquing wire,8siniilar to that used by your Co. for 
house insulation- viz;-- 
L000 kilos Ilo. IO- f000 kiitos lo, 12 
ooo * 14° 600 * Iv 
500 ki Zos lo, 20. 

He desires us to ship to the Co.ut Genou,and adds us foi- 
lows. — ?’For the puyment please to state which way yeu think 
*t*hest to adopt for the present and for future orders.’? ‘ 

Regarding payment- the Edison Co of Paris paid us cash 
on delivery here,and we discounted I percent for payment: on 
presentution of B-L,and the bili was paid by you I think. i 
do not know the Coat Genoa Wili yeu kindly inform me what. ° 
urrangenent you would advise me to adopt concerning payment? 

I would prefer to wake the:same terus as I did with the Edison 
Co.at Paris. - :

Regurdiny sunples of wire subnttted,I have to éuy- 
we cun furnish the .O42 triple cevered at 48cts per ib,and the

COST OF RUNNING SHAFTING. 

‘The American Electric Light Co. of Boston : are using in their station two styles 
of engines. One is a 150 H. P, common style long stroke engine; the others 
are the Armington & Sims Co. high speed engines, which connect direct by belts 
from driving wheels to the dynamo electric machines. The long stroke engine 
runs a line of counter-shafting, and the machinés are belted from this shafting. 
‘A test was recently made by indicating the engine, to find the actual power re- 
quired to run the line of shafting, and the result shows that it took twenty-two 
and a half horse power, or 15 % of the power’ ‘of the engine was wasted in run- 
ning this shafting. ‘This is equal to rooo Ibs. of coal a night. The American 
Co. have decided to remove all long stroke engines from stations they have 
recently taken possession of by consolidation with other companies. The suc- 
cess of the American Co. has been in reducing the cost of making motive power 
by using direct acting engines, and burning. the cheapest fuel under boilers set 
with the Jarvis Furnace. Be es

Mr. Thomas A. Edison, Ao. ges i 
: 65 Fifth ave. N. Y. 
Dear Sirf 5 

we have your favors of May 7. 
Glad to see that you will favor us by: looking up the account 
against the Edison Machine works. ; 

' We note your second favor of the 7th, in which you say that 
your understanding is that the correspondence passed between the 
writer and Mr Edison forms a contract between you and him, in con~ 
nection with any order for boilers that he may be able to place” 
This certainly is our side of the contract. Nr. Edison’s side of 


the-ce@fitract shouldyvbe a very dak tree meeathis consideration he 
places-our boilérs with eve ob that gees ot. Such-a note will 
, close the affafr, 4s we balieys that is the understanding, but of 
_., Course it <is better to have it on record. ot 
; . (Enclosed we hand you our specification for 146 H~P boiler, 
in two furnaces, either one of which can be run indepondent of 
“the other. You will notice we have put nb name on tha specifican 


is 
Cus 


va Ime : 


2 bien bevwe: thelent you might wish to fill it out and hand it in as 
T abide * 2 

Pa ‘@lad to see “you have such good prospects for business and 

4. Should think that this method of handling it would be the best of 

E* any devised. - 


There will*be no difficulty in our man’s superintending the 
brick-work. They are men able to do that, so that there would 
be na necessity of Mr. Woodruff’s going out to see about it, unless ; 
you gave him the job of doing the brick=work. - 
Yours very truly, H

_ HUGH A. BURNS, OF ANSONIA, CONNECTICUT. 


ELECTRIC BATTERY. 


BPECIFICATION forming part of Lotters Patent No, 284,605, dated September 11, 1883, 
: e* ‘ . Applleation Alod May 13, 1823, (No model.) | 





To all'‘whom it may concern: : 
Be it known that I, Huau A. Burns, a citi- 
zen of the United States, residing at Ansonia, 
in the county of New Haven and State of Con- 
necticut, have invented certain new and useful 
Improvements in Electric Batteries, of which 
the following is a specification, reference be- 
ing had therein to the accompanying draw- 
ings. oes hs 
1o = This invention consists in certain improve- 
ments in the construction of carbon batteries 
for electrical purposes, as will be hereinafter 
described and claimed... -. 
In the drawings, Figure 1 represents a ver- 
ig tical section of my improved battery, showing 
the several parts in position; Fig. 2, a side 
elevation of the carbon cylinder separately. 
Fig. 3 represents a top plan view of the earbon 
cylinder and of parts connected therewith, 
20 08 will-be presently explained. - : 
It is the design of my invention to produce 
a battery capable of use in the various and 
numerous branches of the electric art; and it 
consists, essentially, in constructing a hollow 
25 carbon cylinder of about six inches.in length 
and having a series of holes or perforations 
at suitable intervals in its length, a disk or 
eap soldered or otherwise attached to the outer 


on 


circumference of said carbon cylinder, at its 


go upper end. for the double purpose of forming 
a means whereby.said carbon cylinder may be 
suspended within and attached to the inclos- 
ing jar or bottle, and also affording a sapport 
for the positive ‘pole of the battery, and in 
35 Suspending the positive zinc electrode within 
said carbon cylinder by means of a rubber 
disk or washer, which rests within the top of 
, the central orifice of the carbon cylinder. 
A represents the jar or bottle, which may 
40 be constructed of any well-k1iown or desirable 
material and of any suitable form. ‘Within 
this jar is contained the’ solution of sal-am- 
“moniac, such as.is commonly employed in 
electric batteries. * ; 


.45 3B represents ‘a carbon: cylinder, having a 


central perforation or. bore, 0, extending 
throughout. its length, and a series of holes or 
perforations,.D, extending through the walls 
thereof, by means of which the ammoniacal 


§0 solution can freely pass to the interior of the 


earbon cylinder and into contact with the | 
positive electrode or strip of zinc B. . 

- F represents a ring or disk, of brass, wood, 
or other suitable or convenient material, wood 
being preferred on account-of its. cheapness, 55 
which is centrally bored to fit tightly around =~ 
the top of.and rest upon the top edge of the 
carbon cylinder, and has a depending flange, © 
G, which, when the mouth of the jar is of cor- 
responding circumference, engages with and 60 
is held thereon by friction. It is, however, 
designed that this flange G shall be provided 
with suitable ‘slots or.choles, through which 
clamps ‘H may be passed, in order that such 
ring or disk }', which forms a cap for the jar, 65. 
may be applied’to the carbon cylinder, sus- 
pended within jars having mouths of different 


sizes, the disk or cap-in such cases being se- 


eurely clamped to theitop of the jar by the 
clamps H, in,the manner shown in Fig. 1. 70 
When the disk or cover Fis constructed of 
wood, the positive pole J is‘ either placed in 
direct contact with the carbon or else in metal- ; 
lic contact with. a conductor leading to said’ © 
carbon cylinder. 
end of the carbon cylinder are securely at- 
tached together by soldering or other means, © 
in order that when the disk rests upon the 
top of the jar said_carbon ‘cylinder shall be 


properly suspended within said jar, without 80 


necessitating any of the uspal special means 


‘for-attaching said cylinder to or adjusting the 


same in position within the jar, Furthermore, 

by reason of thus attaching the carbon cylin- 
der to the disk F, said cylinder can be very 85 
readily removed whenever desired and re- ° 
placed in position with great case without ap- 
preciable loss of time. — 

I represents a disk or washer, of rubber or 
other elastic insulating materinl; which is in- 90 
serted within the central bore of the carbon 
cylinder, at its upper end, being‘held firmly . 
therein by its own elasticity. This elastic 
disk has a central opening which is ofslightly 
less circumference. than the circumference 95 
of the zinc strip or pole B,- in‘ order that . 
when the zine ‘strip is passed through such 
central opening in the disk I said zinc strip 
will be securely and rigidly held, thereby 
suspended within the central bore, 0, of the 100 


This disk F and the upper 75

carbon cylinder.’ The zine pole orstrip Bhas | 
_ at or near its lower ond one or more pins,‘K, 
of insulating material, passing therethrough, by 
means of which contact between the zinc and 

5 the carbon is prevented. pre pane: 
J represents the’ positive pole, which is 
connected with tho‘ disk or cap F, and it.and 

-_ the zine strip are provided at their upper ends 

with a. suitable connection for the current-, 

ro transmitting .wires. - Eee eta 
"A battery constructed. as above described 
will hold a longer and a stronger current than 
will other batteries of greatly-inereased size, 
and theshape and cqnstruction of the cylinder 

15 Bsecure a great advantage tothe positive and 

negative poles. : Ft 

Having thus described my invention, what I 

claim therein is— _, : : 

.. 1. The combination of the ca 
20 B, having central bore, C, and perforations D 
_in the walls thercof, and the zine pole or strip

for 100 Johnson connections, 50 of which you were instructed to 
send to Iawrenee and 50 were to be held in stock subject to our 


order, We should have considered these bills to have been ren- 


‘dered in duplicate were it not that in one instance you charge us 


4 





fifteen cents for a box and in the other twenty five eents, and 


from this we are led to believe that you have sent altogether 150

Edison Electric Tllm. Co. 
Shamokin Pa. 
Mr. Douty Pres. 
Dear Sir:- 
We have received a bill from Mr T. A. Edison’s 
Construction Dep’t for $362.34 charged to:us they say because 
you have deducted that amount from their account in consequence 
of non-fulfillment of the entire contract’ made by our Wiring 
Departmente 
In referance to the item of tools, and also charges 
againgt us on account of work furnished to us by Mr. Johnson’s or- 
der, we do not now wish to dispute your bill, and are willing 
to let that matter stand. 
We desire however to take exception to the charge of 


$289.92 for not setting 24 of the poles according to contarct. 


. ’ i 
ates it 


Our men went there prepared to carry.,outthe work according to 
specification and that they aid not do so was no fault of ours. 
Poles were not put in according to the map in several places 
because the map located then, where it was impossible to erect 

them for various shyadiéai reasons, such as the presence of a 
stream of water on the spot, the impossibility of getting the 
permission of the owner of the premisis on which the poles were to 


be placed. 








fo meme cat tne wm Tr ptemeenenregeemi tects sae ctencerines coy gece oy Pg Ria ees ae ' = pope sad atc Pee a 


f [8 B- (2-12

This necessitated placing the poles in some instances further 
apart, therby lessening the number of poles. In regard to the 
zemgth of the lines, we ran actually 809 feat of conductors 
more than the order or plans called for and would be justified 
in rendering a bill for said extra work. 

We would be obliged if you would send us an immediate 
reply. 

Yours very Respectfully, 
Bergmann & Co. 


K. 


P. S. 
the same applies of course totthe item $66.52 


for digging poles.

1883. Electric Light ~ Edison Company for Isolated Lighting (D-83-025) 


This folder contains correspondence, reports, and other documents relating to 
the business of the Edison Company for Isolated Lighting, which sold and installed 
small power plants for the lighting of single buildings. Among the correspondents 
are Miller F. Moore, general manager of the company; Spencer Borden, agent for 
New England; and John Hoskin, agent for Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. 
Related material can be found in the Primary Printed Collection (Company 
Records Series) and in D-83-040 (Electric Light - Thomas A. Edison Construction 
Department - General). 


Approximately 90 percent of the documents have been filmed. Routine 
notices for meetings of the board of directors and a few routine items relating to 
the lighting of the steamship Pilgrim have not been filmed.

I recognize as an important friend of our Compas and for whem 
besides that I have very kind feelings. ‘I must’ however protest 
agcinst the terms of Mr. Paiater’s letter when he says ,”But® itias~ 


e-

n 


6m condition of my releasing my cleims on: the stock therm in the 

* reaeury of the company on which I had a Lawful claim ho. te.” 
Noone. aver mentioned to me before that there was any atock in the 
‘treasury, or, if there was, that Mr Painter had any. claim upon it, 

. Bor did I. ever make any promise to wR Painter. upon any considera~ 
tion or. cobdition whatever ‘Whoa IT learned that he, an impo tant 
friend of our interests, chad. Lost. the ‘opportunity. to take his: 
ante of :stock, and also learned that,he claimed was about four 
or five shares,. I voluntarily out of pure good nature ongaged to 
seo that he had it, and I am still ready to keop that promise and 
perhaps even to ‘do more; ‘but I cannot allow this matter to be turn 

. ed into the shape of a Legal’ obligation. 

Mr. Painter will have fo cause whatever to complain of 

me if he comes tome. tT expected to have seen him om Friday or”: 

Saturday. . 

Let us have this matter ended right away, because I may 
not forever continue im a position to do’ anything in respect to it. 
(I) How many shares does ur. Painter ask. for? 


(2) Hor many of those shares (above the nanbor of five)

DUM DATED, AND 81GNED ON WHO MAKES THE CHARGES, AND RETURN 


: hag a . : te 
SAME TO ME FOR: OUR FILES. IN ITS PRESENT CONDITION, IT APPEARS LIKE AN 


ANONYMOUS COMMUNICATION, AND AS SUCH COULD NAVE NO PLACE AMONG THE PA- 


PERS OF THIS OFFICE.ALTHOUGH THAT 18 ITS PRESENT CONDITION, | SUBMIT 
HEREWITH COMMENTS ON THE MEMORANDUM , 80TH THE FIRST PART, AND THE ENU- 
MERATED SPECIFIC RECAPITULATION, AS FOLLOWS: 


_ THERE BEING NO FACILITIES FOR DOING GOOD MACHINISTS WORK: IN 


LOUISVILLE, .L. RICHARDSON & CO. SENT MR, PAINE THE SPEED’ oF THEIR SHAFT 





ING-OR ENGINE- AND ASKED HIM TO.FIGURE THEIR COUNTERSHAFTING AND PULLEYS 


' 


AND. FIND SOME ONE TQ DO THEIR WORK. THIS MR, PAINE -DID AS. AN, ACCOM= 


oa 
‘ 


MODATION TO THEM,, ASSUMING NO. RESPONSIBILITY THEREFOR, THE OLD KENTUCKY 


WOOLEN CO. DOING THEIR BUSINESS WITH MACHINISTS HERE, NONE OF IT GOING 
THROUGH OUR BOOKS, WHEN. MR, PAINE GOT TO KENTUCKY HE. FOUND: THE 


SPEEDS WRONG, A MISTAKE HAVING GEEN MADE BY MESSRS, L. RICHARDSON & CO, 


IN THE SPEED THEY GENT HIM, . THIS THEY CORRECTED LATER, BUT MR. PAINE 
oh _ OVERLOOKED THE PAPER WHICH WAS PLACED ON HI8 DESK, AND THE PULLEYS WERE _

MESSRS. L. RICHARDSON COULD NOT WAIT FOR A NEW PULLEY TO BE 
MADE, AND MR. PAINE SUGGESTBQ ANMETHOO BY WHICH THEY COULD GET THEIR 
_LIGHT tN TWO DAYS, INSTEAD OF THE TWO WEEKS WHICH THEY MUST HAVE WAITED 


| MAKE THIS FULL EXPLANATION, THAT NO CHARGE OF DI8- 























FOR A NEW PULLEY. 
INGENUOUSNESS CAN BE MADE TO HOLD, THOUGH {IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN DISPOSED 
OF IN A LINE, BY SAYING THAT L. RIGHARDSON & CO., FURNISHED THEIR OWN 
COUNTERSHAFTING AND BELT comNEOT ION, ‘AND WE TOLD THEM WHAT WE NEEDED 
FOR SPEED AND POWER, BEYOND WHICH we ASSUMED NO- RESPONSIBILITY. 
THE CLUTCH BUSINESS 18 AMONG THE NUMMBRRED CHARGES,AND WILL 
HAVE ATTENTION WHEN THEY ARE CONSIDERED. 
THE ONLY OTHER ITEM NEEDING CONSIDERATION UNTIL WE Rech THE 
NUMBERED ITEMS, 18 wee eeuewr THAT MR. PAINE SENT LIVERMORE THREE 
DIFFERENT coleGRiONE OF THE DYNAMO OF WHICH NONE OF THEM WERE’ ANY GOOD, 
THIS ISVUTTERLY UNTRUE, “MR, PAINE HAVING NEVER SEEN ANTH? . 
DYNAMO, SENT TO'MR. ANDREWS FOR THE CONNECTIONS, AND MADE CAREFUL NOTE 
OF SAME IN HIS NOTE BOOK ON RECEIVING "ANDREW" ANSWER, BEING IN MON- 
faesieae HIS SISTERS | WEDDING, HE WROTE LIVERMORE Ge CONNECTIONS AS HE 
- REMEMBERED THEM, HI8 NOTE BOOK BEING IN BOSTON, ON RETURNING “TO -BosTOM 
HE COPIED THE CONNECTIONS DIRECTLY FROM THE NOTES GIVEN PT) ay “ANDREWS, 
iio SENT THEM TO Liverwore, WETH A LETTER OF EXPLANATION THAT HE BE- 
LIEVED THE SECOND TO BE THE SAME AS HE HAD ALREADY SENT, BUT IF ANY, 
DIFFERENCE ExisTeD THE SECOND Was To BE FOLLOWED, AS IT WAS TAKEN FROM 
THE AUTHORITATIVE STATEMENT OF ‘THE HEAD OF THE TESTING ROOM AT THE MA~- 
CHINE WORKS. PAINE SAYS Sune Gee Hee ERS #NCORRECT, tT was THE FAULT 


OF INSTRUCTIONS TO HIM, HE SENT WHAT HE REGEIYED FROM YR, ANOREWS, f

{_S8T.THE COUNTERSHAFTING WAS NOT ERRONEOUSLY CALCULATED, BUT CAL-

PERIENCE OF 13 YEARS WITH FRIOTION CLUTCHES, MAKES MY RE@PECT FOR THE 


OPINION THAT WOULD FAIL ‘TO AVALL ITSELF OF & CLUTCH FOR HEAVY BELTA, 
VERY BMALL. IT 18 WELL KNOWN THAT HEAVY BELTS WHEN. PUSHED FROM A LOOSE 
TO A FAST PULLEY, OR VICE VERSA, ARE SOON BURNED AND WORN ON THEIR EDGES

TH. iT is NoT TRUE THAT WE SENT ANY MAN TO LOUISVILLE WHO HAD

Dear Teme err I enclose herewith letter re- 
ceived from Mr Harris ‘with drawing of tunnel, &c. 

Mr. Harris, of course, figures on large, powerful lights, some~ 
thing similar to the Are light, IT take it, from the number of 
lamps that pene ioe Of course Mn Edison will understand that 
only the petinest and most common kind of fixtures are required 
for these rough boarding-houses, black=smith shops, tunnel, ac. 

Another thing which he does not seem to taka into consider= 
ation is the fact that the Plan@ would be valuable oeies the tun- 
nel is completed. The wires coudd be taken out and all the fix- 
tures and’ used in our boarding-houses, offices, and even in light= 
ing up the river where our work vas going on ; and perhaps we may 
have sone quartz mines by that time that will require lighting up 
to work. ove Jie could put ina oe aa as Mr Harris sug- 
gests, to run through the a her pata other times ve should 

’ probably have plenty of power, 
We have not yet got the assay of the two last samples of 
quartz,~ No, 26 and 38,> sant We prosume from reportd that there 
is vory little of the soft rotten rock in the ledge, but T have 


asked Mr. Harris to give more particulars with respect to it, 
very truly yours, f

‘TRACK AT THIS POINT. THERE 18 NO NEED OF A LIGHT 1N THE MAIN POWDER 
HOUSE, AS IT 18 ONLY USED DURING THE DAY~TIME. | 

FROM THE 2ND POWNER HOUSE, DOWN THE DUMP, THERE WOULD BE NEleEnED 
ENOUGH LAMPS fae LIGHT THE TRACK, THAT THE MULES GAN TRAVEL WITH EASE , 
THERE WOULD BE ONE LIGHT NEEDED AT THE END OF THE DUMPS THE TOTAL NUM} 
BER OF LAMPS WOULD DEPEND ON THE LENGTH OF TRACK WHICH WOULD BE LIGHTED

BY EACH LAMP. 





IN THE TUNNEL, FROM THE MOUTH UP TO THE SWITCi1, THERE WOULD BE NEEDED 
ONLY SUFFICIENT LAMPB To MAKE IT LIGHT ENOUGH TO SEE THE ROADWAY. AT 
THE SWITCH THERE SHOULD BE AT LEAST TWO LAMPS, ONE -AT THE HEAD, AND THE 
OTHER AT THE -FOOR OF THE SWITCHS THESE LAMPS OUGHT TO BE ARRANGED 80 
THAT THEY CAN BE EASILY MOVED AHEAD AS THE SWITCH 18 ADVANCED.

STAND OUT DISTIMCTLY, AS THIS 1S THE POINT WHERE AN ABUNDANCE OF LIGHT 
1S MOST NEEDED, AS TO THE NUMBER OF LAMPS THAT WOULD BE NECESSARY, MRe

WHEN RUNNING THE COMPRESSOR BY WATER POWER, WE WOULD BE COMPELLED To 
KEEP UP STEAM ON THE BOILER, AS THERE 18 NO POWER TO SPARE FROM THE 
WATER-WHEELS IN THE EVENT THAT THE COMPANY SHOULD DECIDE TO PUT IN THE 
ELECTRIC LIGHT IT WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER TO PUT IN A SMALL BOILER TO 
RUN IT DURING THE WINTER. 

FROM WHAT | AM ABLE NOW TO @UDGE BY, I THINK THAT CANDLES ARE DECIDED 
LY CHEAPER IN A FINANCIAL SENSE, SUT THERE CAN BE JNO} DOUBT OF THE 
SUPERIORITY OF THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. 

ESTIMATING QUR CANDLE BILL AT THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS PER MONTH, FOR 
TWO YEARS, THE COST WOULD BE $7200, A SUM WHICH WOULD NOT PAY THE FIRST 
COST OF THE ELECTRIC SYSTEM. {IN ADDITION TO THIS THERE WOULD BE THE 
COST OF MAINTENANCE OF THE LIGHT, THE COST OF REPLAGING LAMPS, AND OF 
GRADUALLY EXTENDING THE WIRING AS THE TUNNEL ADVANCED$ THESE ITEMS | 
AM NOT ABLE TO ESTIMATE; STILL, 1 MENTION THEM, IN ORDER TO GET AN 
ESTIMATE FROM PERSONS WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE LIGHT.

. Since all ony efforts to ob- 
tain a more satisfautory definition Beau relations as manuf 
acturers wath our other interests as purveyors of light and power 
seem to breed nothing but hostility and suspicion on tho part of 
those gentlemen who represent the latter, they apparently being 
wholly unable to see anything in our actions but an ulterior 
design upon them, we beg leave hereby to withdraw from any Rad all 
further controversy or discussion in respect ens: 

In doing this we bep leave to call your attention to 

a few facts: |

sought in a most determaned way to snduce our friends in the 
parent company, as well as others to join us an the undertaking, 
In this we signally failed, we thereupon determined upon taking 
all the risks and carrying the burden ourselves to tho best of 
our ability~ more with an object to make tha Bdison electric 
light a success than to make money by manufacturang. This is 
especially true in respect to the business of the GOerck streat 
and Berginann and Go’s factories, 

2nd. These factories having necessarily attained a 


stage of activity prior to the hight Go. proper - the impression 


’ has grown that in our faetories we have the larger proportion '

of the profitable business of the systom, This is perhaps but 
natural, but is none the less erroneous, The practical effect is 
however to place us 1n a falsa position, If the Board, or any 
vomini§ tae appointed by 2t, would gave sufficient time and atton- 
tion to this subject to thoroughly master its various paaends, 
we are of the opinion that they would agree with us that in our 
propositions we ara actually sacrifizing something rather than 
grasping for more. We simply desire to imake safe the capital we 
have invested and were ready to make some present savrifives to 
that end. One thing is certain that an the future should the ab- 
sence of a contract with the various factories work an injury to 
the Rlectrac Light Compuny, they can depend upon us at any future 
time to make just and equitable arrangonents. 

Srd. AS parties interested in the suceess of the 
system as a whole, wo are must anions that no deterioration of 
the character of the work shall ovcur and that:no benefit of our 
experienue shall become available to other than the Fdison system, 
ThiS can in our judgment be accomplished only by keaping the manu- 
facture, at least for some time to come, in present hands, i, 9, 
the hands of parties vitally interested in the Mdison system, 

The expression given vent by one of the Directors of our 
Company to the effect that “they should like to feel that wr. 
Edison’s interests were identical with theirs and not antagon~- 


istic” Woes not only him, but the rest of us great injustice, 


, 


Besides,unless the Edison system becomes an absolute and un-

qualified success, the business of manufacturing for that system 
vill not be worth an effort tu,maintain it. That we hold to the 
Opposite view is evidenced by the fact that we have ourselves in~ 
vested more money in our various factories than has as yet been. 
vut into the business of developing the system in other directions, 
We have not invested this money for to-day nor yet for to-morrow, 
but for the future. 

AS wa believe in the future and have confidence in our 
own ability to maintain our lead in the manufacturing business 
and as we do not wish to foster the suspicions which are already 
too apparent, we repeat, we are content to allow matters to réfidin 


as they are,

Tho action of tir, Satecholor in filing Edison's applizations for 


French patents, without waiting for instructions from here, will 


result’ in shortening tha life of the Americam patent by two ‘Year's. 


Er, Edison states that Kr. Batcholor was obliged to do this in”

income. The first is from dolinquents who have not paid all their 
ingtallments, notably Mr. Sdison, who 1s bohind to the amount of 
$32, 520 (ire Edison will state his roasons for not responding) 
The noxt is an alleged claim against the Tight Co. for experi- 
mantal work, based on the thaory that whereas the Light. Co. con 
tradtod to aie the Tlluminating Co. a perfected system of light ing 
it} did not do so but caused the Illuminating Company ‘itself ‘to 
a@xpend money on exporimontal work, Views differ as to the merits: 
of this claim and as to how much it amounts to in money? The 
thixd sourea of income is in another claim agsint the bight Co. 
for f return of say 10 per centum of the amount (35 per cent) — 
paid for license. The full par centum called for by the contra 
is $350,000. ‘Tho amount already paid is $344,960,6G, of Which 
$271,200 has been paid in stock and $63,740,0G6 in cash, loaving © 
$15,089, 34° stall payable.

now? " Suppose tho light Co. were to pay its debtsof $32, 0'73, 90

to tha Tsolated Go. could the lattar then spare monsy for a divi- 
dend? Tha busy season of the Isela ted CoO. is just opening, end 
the company not only cannot spars money but neads more capital for 
business thanat now possesses, Shall the Tsolated Co. call in 
additional insteliments on the 50 por contum unpaid? In my op- 
inion that will have to be done before September Ist., if we des~ 
eke hamdle all the orders and is all tho businass that will 
come to us. 
_(e) LIGHT CO. I oxpleained in my roport of June Gthe” 

(No. T:) that if the Tight Co. calls in the Ponain ing 20° per’ eont - 
unpaid installments on stock, it will, realize about $21,148, and” 
possibly $4,580 additional. Should this be called in? “VALI 
it’ moét presont obligations and provide for the futuro? Tt will 
not pay in full tho debt to tho Isolated Coe, which is $32,078,96. 
No¥ Will it provide monoy for current exponsos. The business of 
the Light Co, (the installing of central station plants both aer- 
ial and underground) is. developing rapidly. Gontradets for four ” 

‘eitios (Shamokin, Sunbury, Broekton and Lawrence) have been al~ 
duadg Sweantads ostimateos are finishod and contracts aro Likely} 
to bo’ made with three more citias (St. Louis, Danville, and bow 
011)" The cash cost of these soven plants will be’ about $225,000, 
and the eash payments, to the Tight Co., will aggregate say 
$15,000, Besides ‘the above we are now making estimates on 13 other 
places, nemely, Utica, Erie, Portland, Charlaston, Fall River, 
Auburn, Haverhill, Lockport, Syracuse, Ronova, Williamsburg, Lou- 


isville and Hartford, with a fair prospect of getting contracts

President’s memorandum of business for Executive Commit-—

Renee ne ime 


dh) OHIO.. AGENCY .. An-Beeney for promoting central sta- 
tion companies in the State of Ohio is now under consideration. 

The proposed compensation to be paid this agency for services is 
larger than we usually pay, that is to say, it is 20 per centum of 
what we receive, instead of 15 per sone: The proposed contract 
with this Ohio agency company has been examined by Mr Edison and 
Mr. Lowrey ,..as well as by the officers of the Light Company, and 
they recommend it, as well as the seguene of 20 per centum commis- 
wiles: Is the proposed action of the President, making the commis- 


sion in this instance 20 per centum instead of 15 per centum ap~ 


proved? 





CY 


, ARGENTINE. CO. This matter was laid over from the 





last meeting. The President will state the case verbally, and 
Mr. Edison is expected to be present at the meeting to present his 


viewSe

(4) PINANCES. The Execttive Committee at its last ae 
“meeting, June 18th., passed a resolution recommending to the 
A Directors that the capital stock of the Light Co. be incrwased 
to One Million and eighty thousnd dollars, Said increase to be : 
issued at par, to present stockholders, proraes:, the assessments 
to be called in as may be hereafter determinede 
| At the samc meeting the Directors of the Isolated Co. 
were recommended to pay 32 @& semi-annual dividend of 5 per centum. 
For stated’ reasons no meetings of these Boards of Direct- 
ors have been called, and no action having yet been taken on 
either of the above matters, they are now again brought to the at- 


. { 


tention of the Executive Committee.

(5) CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER LIGHT COMPANIES. The i 
Gramme Go. has appointed a Committee of Three on Gonsotiua eons 
The Committee consists of Mr. Flint, representing the United States 
acs Mr. Montgonery representing the Brush Co. (he also represents 
the Swan Co.)s and Mr. Eaton, representing the Edison Co. it 


appears that the Brush and United Stated Companies are ready to 


consolidate with the Edison Co. To what extent shall we favor 


consolidations? 








[BE B-a7-07 ~ 





Mr. Edison, 
In my financial statement to the Directors 


of June Sth. Evetated-that the expenses of the engineering depart- 
ment ahd been going on thus far this year at the rate of $85,000 
@ year or nearly $3,000 a months 
Those expense have now been cut down more than one half 
and are only about $1200 a month for wages. To day they are as 


follows, by the month: 


Clarke $292 

Solden i 150 

Atkins (blue print) 47 

Dodge ' 85 

Burnham i 92, 50 o 
Total 666, 50 


Menlo Park expenses, most of vhich can be charged up to cus- 


tomers ultimately: 


Cladius $125 } 
Gmur . 65 
Anderson (mechanic) 65 
Bengsten (mechanic) 65 
: Burnett (electrician) 63 
Andrews (electrician) 63 
Van Clief (carpenter) 52 
Total 498 
Grand Total . $1,164, 50 


Of course there are some expenses besides wages, but afty 


2 tne BS 


allowing for this I think the expenses of the engineering depart~ 


ment, are to day cut down over one half, 














VBR B-OF-07

EDISON? S LABORATORY EXPENSES. Up to the date of my re- 


port, June 6th., these expenses were going on at the rate of about 


-$40,000 this yeerj from January lst. They have been greatly 


reduced. ‘The laboratory expenses for the last 4 ~wookd,. ending | 


july 7th., have averaged only $108 a week, or $419, 79 “ir = 


Le? . 
at 
1. 


weeks, To this should be added rent and certain. misceTlaneous, 


QT 


charges. The expense even then, at the present irate; yould’ pfo~ he 


ad 


bably not be much greater than $10,000 per year.” a

Now if we can keep down the patent fees, law expenses, 
and not give any new retainers to lawyers and experts, we stand 
@ pretty good chance of keeping our annual expenditures ere 
of our receipts, which ought to be (if a 10 per cent dividend is 
paid) $37,500 from the Isolated Co., besides the various 5 per 
cent cash payments from subordinate companies. 

But the great problem is how to wipe out the debt of 
the Light Co. to the Tsolated Co., for borrowed money. This debt 
anounts to about $30,000.

Edison, ! 
As I told you yesterday morning, I did not intend to 


“recommend the acceptance of this proposition.” I was only. 
discussing it in order toget at all the facts, 

This 1s rather a small matter to bring up, but inasmuch 
as your letter will go on permanent record, I would like to have 
.t changed. Tet me suggest that you run vour pen through“ your 
recommandation” and prt ovar them thasa two words, namely, “tha | 
question” That will make the matter all right, without writing 
the letter over again,

Defect Reports (D-83-028) 


This folder contains a series of reports pertaining to defects and problems in 
isolated lighting plants. These reports, which contain information submitted by 
Edison agents and companies, were compiled weekly and signed by Sherburne B. 
Eaton, president of the company. Included in the reports are summaries of 
problems recorded in "defect books." 


All the documents have been filmed.

Buehler reports that the new mill socket is giving 
him considerable trouble. As intended the idea is all 


right, but it is impossible to screw on the lead base of 


‘the socket when we use.a shade holder, for the plate of

"We find that every socket, switch and safety catsh 
should be tested before using, not only for conductivi-~ 
ty but for resistance. We find that lead wires se~ 
cured by screws are almost invariably ree We get 
light all right in such cases, but also heat, breaking 
lamps and heating fixtures. The intense heat at the 
equator may have something to do with it. Switehes of 


all sizes are badly built. They should be put together 


with stronger screws and more of them Some will not

too slightly put together to stand the strain of open-

such a fault pass the tests? The springs at end of

Suggestions from Phibadelphia about the driving pulley 
of the *K”" dynamo. 
I regard the dimensions of our “x” dynamo driving 


pulley as inadequate to the work raquired of ite The 


‘diameter 14" x face 9" x revolutions 900; work required 


to be done by it without slip 35 Horse Power. Taking

equags one H.P., we have velocity of 3667 feat per 
minute equal to 33 H. P., to be transmitted by a single 
belt, or 2 HW. P., short of the work to be done. It is 


true that in pYaetice we May expect from twenty to forty 


Per cent more than the above safe rule according to the 


“pliabSlity of the belt, its length as effeeting the are 


of contact, and also its tension. Ordinarily we use a 
double belt pulled tight, and as our bslt room is limit ed 
and oftentimes running nearly vertical, the tension re~ 
quired to prevent slip is so great that the journals 

heat badly. Whilst a double belt has more value than 

a single one if used horizontally, much of this value is 
lost when run nearly vertical with but small rate. TI 

do not think that a double belt has the value that some 
attribute to it, for first: it has no more contaet sum 
face with the pulley than a Single belt; Second; it is 
more rigid and thus on a small pulley its contact is not 
quite so good as with a single thin pliable belt. Third 


as our belts are rimat high speed over a Rukiex small 


pulley, the centrifugal action of the double belt as it 


Passes around the pulley has a tendency to prevent the 


close contact a single and consequently tighter belt, ' 


would give. As a larger pulley would require a larger 


and costlier driver,I recommend a broader pulley covered 


with leather as preferable to our present “K* pulley,

We also dasire tu say that the switch on the lamp 
head ae gutta percha comes off and ee us no way to 
turn the electricity off or on. Have you any other da- 


vice to retiedy this defect as it is very annoying? 


Boston, jennaey 2nd, 1833. 
Regarding the new socket I regret that I did not 
make my meaning mors clear. Nr Buehler attached the 
socket in precisely the manner indicated; but inasmuch 
as the wires must be left long anough to “fish”, they 
twist about euch other in screwing on the socket; it 1s 


here that the trouble occurs. If the shade holder can 


>be so made as to permit sliding the holder on to the 
pipe and then screwing on th? lead buse (detached from 
‘the socket) this uiffrevlty will be remedied. This 


_twist of course cannot be surely removed from the in- 


side of the pipe and is liable to cause trouble, 


Bergmann has u shade holdar designed to go with these 


sockets which suits the purpose admirably and permits 
us to use the shade or not as wo prefer. The wires are 


attached to a wooden rim which replaces the rim sent with 


‘the socket. If thes2 could be adapted to onr mill work 


and we were allowed to use tham instead of the present 


inconvenient form, much better results could be obtuined

New York, January Sth, 1883, 
Will you please allow me to suggest that all lamps 
be marked or labelled euenaiays to their kind in this 
manner; 16 cep. A; 16 c.p.B; 8 cp.A; 8 ap. B, ete, 
because in many cases I have knovn of B lamps being put 
into A sockets and of other sizes bein so mixed up as 
to dsfeat the ends of our syst em At the Record in 
Philadelphia we installou & ep. Bs; 16 c.p. As and 32 
cep. AS. One man put seven B lamps ‘into A sockets in one 
night; they gave a life of a few minutes only. I also 
found that the 32 C!{P! lamps were used in unimportant 
pluces in the building to the loss of th2 offies where 
they were wanted. Is not this the Lamp Company’ s anty? 
Boston, January 2nd, 1883, 
Jontinued complaint is recs3ived at this office that 
the brass studs on dynamo yokes ars too short by about 
ly to 34", If the dynamo runs right to left the present 
length is sufficient as the brush holders are made ac- 
cordingly; but when the dynamo runs left to ripfht they 


are too short, Cannot this be remedied, The Edison 


Machine works still continue to send out dynamos with 
_ short brush holdersstuds, although complaints on this 


“matter extend for many months back.

heat which developed in the wire and consequently burns 
through, thus impairing the contracting power of the magnet 
end. The wire on the regulating magnets of the resistance 
coils also has the same defect, 
ord. The resistance coils seem to have wire of too 
small size, as it developes great heat; and in fact in 
several cases gets sovwarm as to scorch the wood. 
4th. The resistance coils of the automaticregulator are 
so arranged that when the plant is composed of more 
than one dynamo, it is necessary to keep the fields of the 
idle dynamo in circuit in order to obtain enough resistance 
This is the cause of wasting a great deal of power, 
5th, The relay magnets do not seem to be sufficiently 
sensitive to slight changes of the pressure of the. current. 
They do not act promptly. 
Gth, The brass spring which acts the counter balance 
to the attraction of the relay magnet, does not retain 
its elasticity, and consequently does not hold its adjust- 
ment, 

th. The bearings which support.thé rockerarm should havo 
small oil holes to per mit of their being lubricated. 
8th. The joints connecting the piston rod with the 
rocker arm, and also with the piston, seem to be Fitted 


too closely. They often cramp the movement of the rocker !

The throttle valve was very poorly threaded, so much 
so that the screw pipe could not be scroved in to make 
a perfect fit. The throttle valve itself would not fit 
firmly on its seat. It would not shut the steam orf 
so the engine could be stopped. The valve had to be 
taken dawn off and ground down to a perfoet fit. 

the exhaust pipe and its connections were not pro~

stiffen so that the regulator would not work until the 
room had become sufficiently warm. 

ti I write you in regard to this as the information 
may be of use at other points where the automatic re- 
pulator is ine use. 

: Chieayxo, November 14th. 18683. 

Our automatic regulator is out of order. The eir= 
cuit is broken in one coil of regulator magnet. 

This machine seems to be made with a view to make 
repairs an impossibility. ‘lo remove one magnet core 
from regulator bed=-plate it is necessary to remove the 
resistanee from the box, disconnect the commutator from 
the bed-plate, unfasten ded-plate from below and then 
the magnet may be removed. All this would be obviated 
by screwing magnets to bed=plate from above. 

There is not sufficient ecloarance between one of. . 
the regulator mapnet poles and the armature. The two | 
come in contact at one part of the Stroke, causing the 
rocker to bind and stick.

Notwithstanding these varied fanits which require 
the frequent attention of an expert, I consider that 
the principle of the regulator is pood, and when in 
order a great advantage over the old resistance box. 

The breakage in coils is doubtless attributable to 





carelessness in manufacturing. | 
The adjustment of the automatic regulator on thé” | :
